The Casio CDP 220R is the latest version of the hugely popular CDP 200R Digital Piano. The piano has been upgraded and expanded to be compatible with the latest technology.
With the CDP 220R, Casio have created an affordable piano focusing on enhanced sound choice and extra digital functions. This contemporary digital piano delivers an authentic tone and touch similar to an acoustic piano, plus all of the versatile functions made possible by digital technology.
The CDP 220R features a massive 700 high-quality tones from a wide variety of genres. These are supported by the 200 rhythms and auto accompaniments from around the world with a special emphasis on Latin beats. You can also create your own rhythms in the 10 user slots.
Additional features which can add flavour to your performance include a pitch bend wheel, perfect for reproducing the sound of ethnic instruments, music presets covering a wide range of musical genres and a scale editor which changes the temperament of the keyboard quickly and easily to suit Oriental music or certain types of classical. Projected through the impressive Bass-Reflex Speaker System, the CDP 220R produces rich and varied sounds.
The Casio CPD 220R is packed full of useful functions designed to help practice and technique building and displays a wealth of helpful information on its large, backlit LCD screen. Apart from the usual recorder and metronome, this Casio digital piano also contains an ingenious Chord Book Reference function that teaches you any chords you may not be familiar with yet. Hear their sound, learn to play them and even view inverted forms of each chord, an invaluable tool for learning and composition. The piano has 152 song bank tunes built-in including 50 exercise phrases.
The Step Up Lesson Function allows you to break up a song into short phrases then choose right, left or both hands, listen, play along whilst watching the key guide indicators on the LCD screen and then play from memory. Your lesson score will then appear on the display screen, allowing you to review your progress. If the keyboard senses you are struggling, a simulated voice can even help you by calling out finger numbers!
The CDP 220R also features both enhanced sound quality and acoustic keyboard feel. Casio's improved dual element AHL sound source uses waveforms of separate samples of the same notes at strong and light key pressures to provide exquisite tone quality. The touch response lets you add delicate nuances to your playing by varying the pressure you apply whilst the Scaled Hammer Action Keyboard provides an authentic grand piano feel. The spring-less hammer system is similar to the one used by grand pianos and provides a keyboard touch that is naturally firm with lower notes playing relatively heavier than high notes. A Casio Piano stand is included in this package as well as a piano stool with storage by Gear4music.
If you manage to get through all of the 152 included songs, just load up some more from external sources and use them for listening, play along or even lessons. The USB port, SD/SDHC memory card slot and general MIDI support allow a wealth of connectivity options or connect a digital audio player or CD player and you can play along with your favourite songs or hook up a microphone and sing along. You can use the sampling function to sample a sound from a microphone and then play the sound back on the keyboard. Why not add some reverb, vibrato or other effects or even incorporate the sampled sound into an accompaniment pattern?
